Personality and behaviour:
Zarat is a fiery and stubborn stallion with his own opinions. He's very intelligent and definitely knows what he wants. Working with him might turn out to be quite the challenge, but Hazel has done it, and they have bonded very nicely over the time she has had him.
He loves showing off and being praised, and he definitely adores getting groomed and dolled with (if it's the right person doing it, of course). He will be a gentleman (mostly) if you bring him sweets (especially citrus ones). It can also be mentioned that he's the loudest stallion, and horse, at the stable.
Since Hazel imported him from Denmark to Norway, she has been working with him every single day for hours, to earn his trust and to make sure they bond in the right way. They have eventually started training, mostly endurance, as he has proven to be very fit for that discipline. They have also tried out dressage, as that have been Hazel's main focus for a few years now, but that did not work out very well, as he didn't like being controlled and restrained in the way a dressage horse is. They're for now working on figuring out a fitting discipline, other that endurance, so his training can vary in a good way and he can stay a happy horse.

Aah, I love him. I have been drooling over this breed for a while, but I wasn't sure if I'd ever be able to draw them correctly (as any horse resembling Akhal Teke or Arabs is way out of my league) :lmao:
I could probably have shaded this better, but the body type is unfamiliar to me, which made it harder than it usually is for me to shade.. I'll do better next time :XD:

Go check out these babes.

Whoah, he looks amazing! :wow: You did an excellent job on the shading; he looks so shinyyy ~   And that's an awesome name for him, btw!  
His personality was fun to read; he sounds like a guy with opinions of his own :giggle:  I'm so glad to hear you like him; I wish you the best of luck with him in the future! C:
